Photograph of members of San Francisco State Strike Medical Committee for Human Rights on hand during the 1968 SFSC student-led strike as police surround an African-American student striker knocked to the ground during a protest on December 3, 1968, known as “Bloody Tuesday.” A crowd estimated at 2,000 students gathered on the Quad to listen to community activist alumni at the Speakers Platform that included Rev. Cecil William (pastor at Glide Methodist Church), Willie L. Brown, Jr. (California State assemblyman), Ron Dellums (member of Berkeley School Board), as well as Carlton B. Goodlett (physician and publisher), who supported the strikers. Students wearing blue armbands from the Committee for Academic Environment scuffled with strikers who found themselves outflanked and retreated from barricaded areas, after the police dispersed, strikers reassembled at the Speakers Platform and threw rocks at the police, and violence escalated again.
